Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A gripping black comedy by an award-winning new voice.

It's the 1960s, and young Abel Stein has taken a dislike to a cockney punter called Reg, knocking him out with a plastic charity collection box, and stuffing him in a cupboard. As Abel, his brother, and two associates keep watch over Reg, the grapevine informs them that the Krays are in town. What do you do when you've inadvertently kidnapped England's most fearsome man? And what will you do when his infamous and psychotic twin brother comes looking for him? Bones was co-produced by Live Theatre Newcastle and Hampstead Theatre, London in February 2002.

Praise for previous work: "A tenderly lyrical charmer ... this felt like the most profound lesson about life. Straughan's drama was a piercing portrait of a life of rare promise and sadness cut dramatically short. Lorca's body was never found, but his spirit was briefly recovered here."—The Guardian

"Inescapably haunting ... Remember the author's name."—Financial Times

Winner of a 1997 Northern Writers Award, a CP Taylor award for playwriting, and an Alfred Bradley award for radio.
